SKY has a wide range of shots: Rohit Sharma
After losing the game against England, Rohit Sharma shared a few words in the post-match presentation and praised Suryakumar Yadav for his fabulous show with the bat. "I thought it was a fantastic chase although we fell short. We are proud of the fight. Surya was magnificent to watch.
I have been watching him for a while now. Loves this format, has wide range of shots. He has grown from strength to strength since we got him into the squad. They put us under pressure with their batting," Rohit Sharma was quoted as saying as same in Cricbuzz.
"Decent partnership put us on the back foot. You back yourself to get this score. We were clear in trying out guys if they can bowl 4 overs. We have things to work on as a group. Hope so.
So far things are pretty good. We don't want to sit on laurels. We want to get better every game. Today was great learning for us to come out and bowl. And to bat as well. Games like this will teach you," he added.
However, fans wanted to witness the vintage Virat Kohli when the right-handed batter smashed a fabulous shot over the bowler, David Willey for a six at the long-on region.
